New and improved way to manually place ad breaks in your video:
You can now manually insert ad breaks (sometimes called “mid-roll ads”) during the upload flow. Once your standard definition (SD) processing is finished, you’ll see the option to Place Manually in the Monetization section of the upload flow. You can also now insert ad breaks directly from the monetization tab on the video details page. Instructions here.

New “Restrictions” column:
The new “Restrictions” column (found on the Videos page in YouTube Studio) lets you know if anything is preventing your audience from watching your video. For example, Copyright Strikes or age-restrictions. If you’re a monetizing creator, it also tells you if anything is impacting your video’s monetization.

Copyright (Content ID) tools in YouTube Studio 
We’re making it easier for Creators to understand and resolve Copyright claims in YouTube Studio. You’ll now see information about your channel’s copyright strikes directly on your YouTube Studio Dashboard. We’ve also added an explicit Trim option directly on the Video Copyright details page to help you trim out copyrighted content claimed by Content ID and automatically release the claim. Lastly, there is a new filter in the Videos page that lets you see which of your videos have been impacted by Copyright strikes or Content ID claims. Read more in the full post here.

New expandable video description box
Video descriptions are super important, so we’ve made improvements to the description box! Now when you enter video description, the box will expand as you type (great for long or multi-line descriptions!). 

If you're typing a long description, the box will lengthen to make it easier to see what you've added. You'll see this both on a video's details page and the new upload experience.

What's new with Comments in YouTube Studio:

[New Launch] Smart Replies for comments (Updated on Apr 14)
‘Smart replies’ are comment text/reply suggestions in YouTube Studio to help creators respond more easily and quickly to comments. These suggestions can be easily edited before posting (just like Smart Replies on Gmail!) and are based on the most commonly used creator replies that YouTube sees today. 

Smart Replies are currently only available in English, but we plan to expand to more languages in the future. If you have the feature, try it out today and let us know what you think!

Learn more about who is commenting on your channel directly in Studio (Updated on Feb 27)
When viewing comments in YouTube Studio > Comments, you'll see badges to help you quickly recognize who is a "top commenter" for your channel, and who is publicly subscribed. The badges appear to the right of the commenter's username. These badges have now rolled out to all creators in Studio!

You can now insert End Screens directly from the Video Details page or while uploading a video once your video has finished SD processing. It will also allow you to import an end screen from a template or any previous video, all without leaving your current task.

Remove Copyright material with Assisted Trim
We’ve added an explicit Trim option directly on the Video Copyright details page. You can trim out copyrighted content claimed by Content ID in your video which automatically releases the claim. The endpoints of the edit are pre-set to where the claimed content appears in the video. We’re working on allowing adjustable endpoints so you can cut out the portion of your video that provides the best viewer experience. In the meantime, you can still do this via the YouTube Studio Editor.
